Short tempered super-model Naomi Campbell was at it again this time taking out her frustrations on a video camera with her fist. In an interview with ABC News she was asked if she ever received a ‘blood diamond’ from notorious and ousted African dictator Charles Taylor.
“I didn’t receive a blood diamond and I’m not going to speak about that” Naomi responded and then stormed off the set when the reporter followed up with further questions. Here is the video clip:
Apparently the reporter shouldn’t have went there. The question stems from a comment Mia Farrow, who was visiting Nelson Mandela at the same time as Naomi, made in which she claimed she overheard Campbell say she got her hands on the big bling-bling in the middle of the night from the former Liberian president.
Taylor (the bad dictator dude) is currently being held at the Hague on charges of possessing uncut diamonds used to fund terror in Sierra Leone between 1997 to 2001. You may have seen the movie Blood Diamond which was all about this corruption.
According to tvguide.com Campbell’s recent outburst is far from her first:
“The temperamental 39-year-old was accused of attacking her New York City driver last month, pled guilty to assaulting a police officer at a London airport in 2008, pled guilty to hitting her housekeeper with a crystal-studded BlackBerry in 2007, was accused of beating her assistant with a cell phone in 2005 and pled guilty to assaulting another assistant with a telephone in 1998.”
I bet getting whacked with a crystal studded BlackBerry would freaking hurt. Hey Naomi, in the immortal words of Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry be Happy!
